Ebony disagreed with the rating and said:
As much as I adore this film, does it truly pass? man of any age & discussed in any context, romantic or otherwise. Of the six named female characters, Scout is the only to have meaningful verbal interaction with another. And when she does, the conversation is in regards to either Atticus, Boo, Jem, or Walter Cunningham.

At one point, Scout, Maudie, and Calpurnia talk about Scout's new dress. Atticus and Jem are on the outskirts of the conversation, but don't contribute much to it.

Also, right after this, Miss Caroline and Scout talk about the students in their class (who are of course of mixed gender).
